  Keynote in 2003

Dr Hai Zhuge is a Distinguished Scientist of ACM and a Fellow of British Computer Society. His major research interest is to explore the fundamental issues on semantics, knowledge and dimension in a multi-disciplinary background. One of his contributions is semantic modelling. He created the Semantic Link Network model and the Resource Space Model and integrated them as a fundamental semantic space to support semantics-based management and exploration of various resource spaces. Research has established a uniform theory and method for modelling, organising, retrieving, and managing both cyber objects and concepts so that various information services can be efficiently provided with understanding. A set of high-performance semantics-based distributed platforms was established to provide a self-organised and adaptive architecture for efficiently sharing and managing various cyber objects. His model, theory and method have been applied to many applications, including summarisation, question answering and recommendation.

In recent years, he is leading research towards a new science and engineering for Cyber-Physical Society.
